When a new baby comes into our family, I just want to make all the things, I love making these baby month milestone blankets and monthly baby bodysuits too! I started with this Milestone Blanket.
How To Make A Monthly Milestone Blanket
I used the Cricut EasyPress to make this baby milestone blanket and it was so super easy to do!
Using the EasyPress 2 made it easy to place everything and then press without the hassle of having to move your material around and ending up readjusting your pieces.
The 9x9 Press gave me more of the heated plate so I could press a larger area at a time.
So if you haven't checked them you, you definitely should look into it for all your Heat Press needs. Especially if you don't have the room for a traditional heat press. These are the answer.
Supplies needed for the milestone blanket are
- Baby Blanket (I used this one)
- EasyPress 2
- Glitter Iron-on
- Printable Vinyl
- Cricut Chipboard
- Iron on Vinyl
The beauty of a project like this is you can personalize it however you want, put trucks or baseballs for a little boy, or make it gender-neutral by adding a favorite character to it, the possibilities are endless..
Our baby shower is shades of purple, we are doing a royalty theme, I plan on doing some Giant Paper Flowers also.
The whole time I was planning this project I had an image in my head of how I wanted this baby milestone blanket to look. I totally exceeded my own expectations here.
I designed this Baby Milestone Blanket using the Cricut Access fonts. I used images from Adobe Stock, totally worth the cost if you do a lot of custom design. I edited the images in Adobe Illustrator.
The ring is just 2 pieces of chipboard that I hot glued together and then pressed a piece of iron-on vinyl to them.
